Our expert teams support the tertiary paediatric services provided at Great Ormond Street Hospital as well as acting as a specialist referral centre for hospitals, clinics and clinicians across the world.

Our world-class teams are comprised of clinical scientists, researchers, technologists and administrative support staff. Our laboratory teams play an essential role in the diagnosis and treatment of childhood illness. We also provide some services for testing of adult samples.

A key part of our service is the expert clinical advice that supports the delivery of results and diagnosis. Close links are also maintained with clinical colleagues and researchers at the University College London Institute of Child Health.
